The menu features small plates with prices ranging from $5-$14. The menu is available in the bistro, at the bar and on the patio. Nosh is perfect for a casual night out or a lighter meal.

"This is my favorite menu at Willow - small plates of gourmet food, cheaply priced. What's not to like? However, the rival for my favorite menu is the $10 lunch deal which I have been to twice already."

Located on bustling Washington Circle in the West End, District Commons is anchored by a monumental raw bar and an open hearth oven for flatbreads and savory tarts. A 'Pig Board' of ham and biscuits will showcase a selection of America's finest hams. Chef/Owner Jeff Tunks serves up classic American cuisine in this gorgeous setting. Chili Glazed Duck, Brick Pressed Chicken, Classic Hanger Steak - these choices and more! Freshly baked breads and desserts round out your meal. Try one of our regional American drafts or exquisite wines, or sample from the 99 Beers on the Wall!

"Enjoyed the pretzel baguette, short rib burger, veg pot pie and meatloaf. Huge wine lists and not all are too expensive. Pleasant atmosphere and wait staff."
